The newest Yo Gabba Gabba DVD couldn’t have come at a better time for us. As you all know, we recently had a major emergency in our home which brought us to the doctor’s office and hospital. DD has been a relatively healthy girl up until this point. She has had a few mini colds, but nothing major that would have completely put her out of commission for a few days. The newest Yo Gabba Gabba : Let’s Visit the Doctor DVD hits stores on January 11th and teaches kids all about being sick and visiting the doctor.
In this video, Toodee is sick and has a fever (sound familiar?!?). She wants to play, but she can’t because she needs to rest up so she can get better quickly. Her friends come over with easy snacks to eat and the Doctor even comes in to check up on her. True to Yo Gabba Gabba’s style there are plenty of songs and fun things to get kids excited about being sick and getting better.
DD and I watched this together. I found that it gave me a really good chance to talk to her about being sick and what things we need to do for her to get better. The most important thing was resting. DD is an extremely busy 2 year old. There is never any down time with her; she goes flat out all the time. Although with this recent sickness she has calmed down a bit, she still shouldn’t be running around so hard that she ends up in fits of coughs. So, I used this episode with DJ. Lance and friends to teach her about relaxing and drinking lots of fluids when she is sick, just like Toodee is doing.
I’m hoping that the point got across, but at only 2, it’s hard to say. She’s not eating much and only wants to drink milk. Not the best choice with a throat full of phlegm (why is this word spelled like this?!?), but at least she is getting something into her tummy.
Yo Gabba Gabba is a very creative show that uses song and dance to teach children important things in life, such as manners, washing your hands, eating right and taking care of your teeth. I’m happy that the kids like it, because as we all know we can try to teach our kids these things ’till we are blue in the face, but as soon as it’s reinforced by something on television, it becomes gospel.
